Nolita is the moniker given to the area North of Little Italy. The neighborhood has lost much of its recognizable Italian character in recent decades with the migration of Italian-Americans out of Manhattan. The mafia is said to have conducted their business on the streets of Nolita. In the second half of the 1990s, the neighborhood saw an influx of yuppies and an explosion of expensive retail boutiques and trendy restaurants and bars.
